Easily share USB over LAN via
USB Network Gate
If you do not have any Internet access at all, then USB Network Gate is definitely should be taken into account. One of its main features and fortes in comparison with FlexiHub is an ability to work via a local network only when FlexiHub needs an unbroken Internet connection to share a device over LAN. Another great feature of USB Network Gate is the ability to tunnel USB traffic over the RDP protocol, which will undoubtedly come in handy.
- Install USB Network Gate on the machine with a physical connection to the device to be shared.
- Launch the application and select the “Share local USB devices” tab. Choose the device you want to share from the list provided.
- Click “Share” after selecting the device and make any configuration changes that are required.
- Click the “Share” button again to make the USB device available to other networked computers. Sharing a device over the Internet requires that the sharing computer’s external IP address is visible to other users.
Now you can easily access USB over LAN just as if it was physically present on a remote machine or in a virtual environment. Your account is password-protected so that only authorized users can access shared devices. Also, you always have an option to lock the shared device for the time you don't want it to be accessed remotely.
